West Ham United player Tomas Soucek‘s performance during the international break has given David Moyes a selection headache. The Czech Republic International has been a top player for the London based club and Moyes’ favorite as well.

Despite the £19m signing being a key player, the addition of Ward-Prowse and Alvarez made him sit on the bench against Luton Town. It was for the first time that Soucek had been benched since February 4th 2023. However, he did start against Man City in their previous game. Despite that, this will now be a worry for the Czech Republic international that he may remain on the bench for long time by the recent performances by the latter two.

Tomas Soucek performance in Intl break increases Moyes headache

Soucek’s performance against City was disappointing, but playing for Czech in a 1-1 draw against Albania before that, he was quite impressive. It shows that he still has a lot to more to deliver. Furthermore, it will definitely compel Moyes to have a second thought about his starting lineup in upcoming days.

The match against Albania ended 1-1 but Soucek was a key player as he managed to pick up an assist and also pick up the best rating of the game, 8.1, via SofaScore. The midfielder was impressive in both attack and defense. The point was crucial as it saw his country stay in first place in their UEFA European Qualifying group.

Tomas has been Moyes’ favorite for a long time. Moreover, his performance just after getting benched by West Ham may force the manager to make some alterations. With the upcoming fixture against Liverpool, the Hammers definitely have to find the right tactical squad to continue their form.

The Hammers have been decent since the start of the season, collecting 10 points in 5 games. Now, Moyes needs to pick his best midfield to try and compete with some of the best sides in the Premier League.
